(NaturalNews) A recent chemical spill at a water treatment facility in Rock Island, Ill., required the assistance of an emergency relief crew decked in the very same type of hazmat suits being worn by workers at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant in Japan. Except instead of radiation, the leaked chemical at the water plant was actually hydrofluorosilicic acid, a chemical fluoride component commonly added to drinking supplies for the stated purpose of preventing cavities. This fluoride chemical is so hazardous that it actually began to burn through parking lot cement in Rock Island before emergency crews arrived on the scene.

According to reports from WQAD News 8 in Moline, a tanker truck delivering the fluoride began to overflow, leaking the chemical directly onto the parking lot where it spilled down towards the street. And before emergency crews arrived on the scene in full hazmat suits and gas masks, the fluoride had actually begun to burn a hole right through the concrete.

Washington D.C., March 27, 2011 – Pharmaceuticals are a $650 plus billion dollar a year industry. For years the most profitable business in the U.S. has been the pharmaceutical corporations, which routinely top the annual fortune 500 list. Doctor prescribed drugs support an industry which out-earns the GNP of many nations.

A core attribute to big Pharma’s overwhelming ‘success’ lays in the liaison between the corporations and the ‘symptoms management’ health care industry: The pharmaceutical representative. The men and women we see meeting with physicians, walking into offices with gifts of lunch for the staff, meeting with the doctor while you wait for our appointment.

Gwen Olsen was a top level pharmaceutical rep for some of the biggest in the industry: Johnson & Johnson, Syntex Labs, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Abbott Laboratories and Forest Laboratories.

Through some chilling wake up calls in her tenure, and the tragic drug-related death of her niece, Gwen has dedicated her life to making people aware of the dangers of prescription drugs and how the drug industry manipulates doctors into prescribing, and over prescribing, their drugs.

You probably remember how, for some time, South Africa was resisting the distribution of the highly toxic antiretroviral treatment for Aids patients also called HAART. That was when South African president Thabo Mbeki had looked into the background of the Aids epidemic that the 'experts' said was about to devastate Africa and found the science wanting. Mbeki had hosted a conference where - God forbid - scientists were allowed to question medical orthodoxy, but in the end, the pharma-inspired experts prevailed. Mbeki had to go, and HAART is now being delivered to the poor. Mind you, they do not get clean water or proper nutritional support, but they do get the medication. Big Pharma won. Hail scientific orthodoxy.

Perhaps that was a rather pyrrhic victory however, because even though everything was done to discredit any budding alternatives in Aids care, especially if they involved nutrition, those things that work have a habit of refusing to die. They keep passing from person to person. They just can't be wiped out.

The then South African health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang was attacked and ridiculed for advocating "lemon, garlic and olive-oil" and her recommendation was "given a firm thumbs-down by the South African Medical Journal" (without having done any studies, by the way). But those natural, good health promoting things that grow in our gardens are not going to go away so easily, especially since more and more people are finding that the mixture, called UMLINGO WAMANGCOLOSI, is helping them get healthy where the toxic medications have miserably failed.

Our friend Cal Crilly in Australia, a musician who spends much of his free time reading up on the latest biochemical research, has looked into this and has written up an interesting story. It is about endogenous (meaning natural to all humans) retroviruses that help cells grow and that are present when there are illnesses to heal. The story is also about nutrients that help do the same thing, and where those nutrients can be found in our foods.

If we could just end that senseless war on all the microbes we don't yet fully understand ... but that is another story.

Here is Cal discussing UMLINGO WAMANGCOLOSI. The message was originally addressed to a group of people on facebook, so if you don't recognize a name ... it's because you weren't there to catch the beginning.

201103241517.jpg(NaturalNews) Earlier this month (March 2011), Japanese authorities ordered doctors to stop using pneumococcal and Hib vaccines because four children died after receiving the shots. However, the real news was never reported: more than 2,000 babies died in the United States after receiving vaccines for these very same diseases, yet authorities refuse to warn parents and halt production. A safety review is vital to determine whether a recall of the dangerous shots may be necessary to protect additional American babies from disability and death.

According to Paul Offit, media spokesperson for the vaccine industry, "the Japanese Ministry of Health was foolish to suspend the Hib and pneumococcal programs." Offit thinks the deaths were probably caused by SIDS, or underlying conditions, or another cause - anything except the vaccines. Often, children get sick and die by chance.

Suzy Cohen R.Ph., is the author of “Drug Muggers.”
March 21, 2011

Tired and Depressed? Chronic Pain? Brain Fog? Leg Cramps? Digestive Problems? Hair Loss? Nerve Pain? These symptoms may be a result of the medications you're taking! Surprised?

Prescription and over-the-counter drugs help millions of people with diseases and chronic conditions, but did you know that in the process, these medications can also deplete the body's natural stores of vitamins, minerals, and hormones, causing uncomfortable and unpleasant side-effects and even new diseases?

The drug-induced nutrient depletion suppresses the very nutrients that you need to keep energy levels high, fend off infections, and remain healthy. I call these medications "Drug Muggers," and it's essential to replenish what a drug mugger steals from your body in order to feel your best.

Let's first talk about taking medicine, since millions of Americans do. Taking medicine means that you are being robbed of essential nutrients because drugs have the ability to rob your body's stores of vital life-sustaining nutrients. When a drug robs your body of a nutrient you will experience another effect of that drug, something you call a "side effect." Side effects are often the reason that people don't stay compliant with their medication regimen. They become so miserable that they have to stop taking the drug, against their physician orders. If you need your medicine (or if you want to stop it) then that decision is between you and your doctor. I'm not getting in the middle of that.

ADHD medication given in breach of NHS guidelines as professor says parents putting pressure on GPs


3243.jpg

Children as young as four are being given Ritalin-style medication for behavioural problems in breach of NHS guidelines, the Guardian has discovered, prompting the leading psychological society to call for a national review.

Family-based therapy is recommended for treating children with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), with prescription drugs used only for children over six years old and as a last resort.

The figures, based on data from 479 GPs, show prescription rates were highest for children aged six to 12, doubling to just over eight per 1,000 in the five years up to 2008. Children aged 13 to 17 had the second highest rate at six per 1,000, while those aged 25 and over had less than one per 1,000.

LOS ANGELES — California has joined a whistleblower lawsuit that claims Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. bribed doctors to prescribe its drugs, costing insurers perhaps millions of dollars in the largest alleged health care fraud case ever handled by the state, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced Friday.

The suit claims company salespeople plied physicians with speaking fees, expensive meals, gifts and trips to induce or reward them for prescribing large amounts of its drugs, which were billed to private insurers.

For example, the company invited doctors to attend Los Angeles Lakers games at Staples Center and spent thousands of dollars on luxury suites, the suit claimed.

"Golf outings, basketball camps, samba lessons, you name it," Jones said at a news conference.

Pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb bribed thousands of California doctors and pharmacists to promote its drugs, using illegal kickbacks, lavish gifts and “happy hours” with the Los Angeles Lakers to expand its market share in the state, state officials said.

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced Friday that his office had joined a previously sealed whistleblower lawsuit against the company, calling it the largest health insurance fraud case ever pursued by a California state agency.

Two of the three whistleblowers in the case are former Lakers player Lucius Allen and his wife, Eve, who worked for the drug company as employees and provided access to the basketball team, whose players participated in “Lakers Dream Camps” set up by the drug company for doctors and their family members, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit was filed in 2007 but was sealed until the state joined the case recently.

201103211158.jpg The federal government was asked by a watchdog group to investigate several allegedly “unethical long-term, placebo-controlled studies” for indacterol, a Novartis drug for treating moderate to severe chronic obstructuve pulmonary disease. Why? “The studies were marred by a failure to minimize risk to subjects and inadequate information provided to subjects,” according to Public Citizen.

In a letter sent to the Office for Human Research Protections at the US Department of Health and Human Services, the group alleges there six “unethical” studies in which placebo-control subjects received prolonged substandard care. Put another way, Public Citizen charges the patients were prevented from using widely acknowledged standard care and that informed consent was likely inadequate because placebo patients would not have known substandard care would be offered.

“The scientific question of whether indacaterol was better than placebo for treating moderate to severe COPD was not an important or clinically useful question, given the existing state of knowledge about COPD treatment at the time these studies were conducted. Rather, the important question is whether indacaterol is at least as good as currently available bronchodilator therapy,” the group writes.

Fresh controversy: Professor Collignon has called for a review of Australia's flu policy (Reuters: Dylan Martinez)

There is renewed controversy surrounding influenza vaccines, with some studies showing people immunised against the seasonal flu might have been at greater risk during the swine flu outbreak.

Infectious diseases expert Professor Peter Collignon has called for a review of Australia's flu vaccine policy in light of the new research, but the Federal Government has defended its vaccination program.

Immunisation can be a sensitive issue, particularly when it comes to adverse effects in children.

Professor Collignon from the Australian National University (ANU) says the new research will only heighten sensitivities.
